I've tried a lot of different strings, but I always come back to GHS Boomers. They just sound right to me - well-balanced and even. Plain steel and nickel-plated wound.

Tom, are the E 9th sets available in UK? Can't see them listed anywhere, only six string sets.
I can ship the NYXL E9th sets to UK, Malcolm. No problem.

My Carter D-10 (bought used) had them. They were too hot and harsh for my Mesa/Boogie amp. I replaced them with Tonealigners, and now I'm very happy with the sound of the guitar in any amp.

It's sort of a crapshoot on the wound strings. Often the core wire (which determines the tension) will be the same on adjacent gauges. The only way to be sure is to check them with a micrometer.
